Hi, if you go to sears parts direct and put your model #in you will get a diagram of the parts and how they go together. Looks like you have a real classic there. If, you cannot figure it out from the diagrams, try and find a reliable repairman, someone who has been in business for a few years. Good luck, Happy New Year

    I have put in the model number but I don't get any returns that are sewing machines

  • Mary Dunn Jan 02, 2011

    I just did it again. Google sears parts direct, Put in 148.273 and under the drop down enter model number not part number then a whole break down of the parts comes in diagram form

How can I put back the suttle race cover and the suttle after I oiling them. In the manual dosen't clear.


Look at the race cover... it's got a couple of matching dents in one side where the little plastic "bunny ears" fit into them. The shuttle goes into the race, then the race cover goes over the shuttle, and you move the little plastic bunny ears into position to hold the cover -- the tips fit in the dents.
Then put in the bobbin in the bobbin case.
It's very much like this: http://www.manualslib.com/manual/85659/Kenmore-385-15208.html?page=68

Take it to your nearest Sears store and go right to the sewing machine department, they are usually very helpful and can tell you if it needs service or not. Take your manual with you.

Brother XL-2022 Bobbin Problem


Removable parts are the race and bobbin case.

Raise the needle to it's at the highest position and set the race hook into the shuttle so the hook is at the lower left.

Re-place the hook race cover and move the levers or pegs to hold the cover in place.

I need to know how to clean and oil the machine


From the Sears Kenmore manual:
Using a small brush, remove the lint that accumulates in the shuttle area and around the feed dogs.
To Clean the Shuttle Area:
  1. This area must be kept free of dust, lint and occasional tangled thread. Raise the needle bar to its highest point and remove the bobbin case.
  2. Push levers of shuttle race aside and lift shuttle race cover and shuttle out.
  3. Clean the shuttle race with a small brush.
  4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and shuttle race.

You might need to clean the shuttle assembly.

1. Raise the needle bar to its highest position and remove the bobbin case.

2. Push levers sideways of the shuttle assembly and liftshuttle and shuttle race cove out by the center pin.

3. Clean the shuttle race of any lint or small particles of thread with a small brush.

4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and on the shuttle race.

to reassemble, hold sjuttle by center pin and it carefull into assembly opposit the shuttle driver. Slip shuttle race cover into place. Snap the levers into position.

Occasionally remove the needle plate and clean feed dog with soft brush.

I hope that helps!

Can't reassemble shuttle hook and shuttle race


the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

Shuttle hook


Hello ZAckofun
The shuttle hook will be covered by a plate called the RACE. Its a flat steel plate that sits over the hook and is snapped in place by 2 black coloured snaps.
Looks like you are trying to operate the machine without the race on. try that and it should work.
